Islam, but I'll kill you if you tell anyone.

Non-Universal ones.

That image makes no fucking sense.

Please define "tolerant". Social behaviour or religious customs?

>>653751
Taoism.

East should be more like this considering the amount of rape going on over there

"live and let live"

Agnosticism.

The point is that Muslim women have their minds liberated? While the western have only their bodies free. I have no idea, that image is shit.

Also, relating to OP, religion is by its nature restrictive, you should be looking for a philosophy that promotes freedom, however, Tao would be a decent answer although it's not exactly a religion in the way it is perceived by occidentals.

Matter of fact, Christianity is the most free religion, look at its effects, the western world has went through changes that gave is an unprecedented liberty to act and think.
>>
>>653751
Orthodox Christianity, in the sense that it will endure the longest.

It's not to do with their women. That isn't a burqua. It's more so referring to war in the middle east. It's suggesting that arab men are directly exposed to the war since it's in their home country and are taking up the fight against the west, hence the balaclava. Where as the western men remain ignorant of what occurs in that part of the world allowing their government and military to fight for them.

You are correct in it being shit though.

Though on second glace it might actually be a burqa and i'm retarded.

Is there even a greater symbol of tolerance than the yin yang? Are other religions even trying?

>>653812
Not him but they used to import and adopt gods like Magna Terra, Mithras, Isis etc without complication.
>>
>>653761

Western women are blind to the truth: they are mistakes made by a perfect god that must be altered by man to be made acceptable to said god.

>muh kalam

Yeah the image makes perfect sense...

>and are taking up the fight against the west
What are you even talking about?

Caesar goes in foreign land of the Gauls, sees depictions of deities, claims they're his own, such as Mercury. Read his books.

How do you even wage religious warfare with such a mentality? That we worship the same gods.

Pax Deorum = all gods of all the ancestral cultures within the Empire have to be worshipped properly, proceed to import them as protector to the Empire.
>>
>>653830
Ignoring the fact that my interpretation is completely inaccurate, the image is clearly made by an anti-westerner. From the perspective of an anti-western islamic state soldier or supporter, the war is largely a fight against western power and influence. That is what i'm talking about, it's propaganda.

We live in a decadent culture, there is nothing 'anti-westerner' about it.

Decadence is a state of society. If you enjoy the decadence, then enjoy it. Many enjoyed the gay sex and orgies of Greek culture.

You know there have been Buddhist killing people in Sri Lanka, ya? Granted, almost all the major Buddhist leaders (including the Dalai Lama) came out and denounced these actions and begged them to stop... but even Buddhist have acted violently; recently and in the past. Know your history.

This>>653852 is one of, if not the most peaceful religion to have ever existed. It's an offshoot of Buddhism. The Jains felt the Buddha didn't go far enough.

Of course there are violent buddhists. But as far as I know, we don't see buddhists leaders starting holy wars.

Buddhism as a "institution" is really tolerant. More than christianism.

The buddhist monasteries waged war to control they territories, the Japanese sects meddled a lot and waged war, that's one of the reasons Nobunage wrecked them etc.

those may be examples of Buddhist groups going astray but in terms of actually examining the teachings of the different religions and what the founder of the religion said, Buddhism and the teachings laid out by Buddha are the most tolerant in terms of explicitly advising tolerance and denouncing intolerance.

Regardless of how it has sometimes been practiced by groups in its long history there is no religion that has a greater emphasis on tolerance in its teachings then in Buddhism.

I think it symbolizes how the muslim world (supposed antithesis to the west- compare east to west) is aware of its dogms and accepts them however good or bad they may be because that is how the world works to them. Meanwhile the west (although we have few religious dogms today we certainly have highly influencial sociopolitical ones today- see liberalism, multiculturalism, etc) is unaware that we are owned by our dogms and refuses to accept that we don't have as much choice as we think we do.

Jainism is sort of self destructive on paper though. I realize that the rules aren't as harsh for Jains who are laymen, but the principles I would say are more about restriction and virtue rather than tolerance. For me Buddhism speaks more logically of tolerance.
>>
>>654127
That is a looong time ago though, the circumstances were completely different back then. Still not as bad as crimes committed by other world religions as entities if we are stretching far back into the past. We are comparing religions as if they were lined up under glass domes (is there a better phrase for this analogy?).

Sri Lanka conflict can be seen as a "holy war" or more accurately an ethnic war. Same is true for Burma. Ethnic tension is the reason. If they hated other religions, then they'd be on a crusade. But its more a terrorist in Sri Lanka + muslim entitled rapists in Burma.

Abrahamic religions are- in essence- intolerant. No exceptions.

Your whole fucking belief rests on this: there's one god. There's no others besides that one.

Amen. But there are 3 different "Abrahamic" religions bro, and they are very different.

Christianity is very tolerant at the base level of its teachings but when white people get involved go figure something goes wrong
>>
>>654521
why do whites invent terms to describe notions they don't even know about
>>
>>653780
"Let live" to what extent?

My answer is Jains. They're so tolerant, they'd turn a blind eye to rape and murder.
>>
>>654849
So you're saying Europeans are Jains?
>>
>>653751
Tolerance is not, and never was, the attribute of any religion.

This is not bad; it is the nature of faith to assume that is right.

As two contradictory positions can not be simultaneously correct, necessarily one of it (and here comes the figure of the infidel and the heretic) is wrong.

Tolerance is a refinement of civilization.

You live with those levied in error, respect this error, and the opinions that surround it, because it is simply not yours. Not up to you to fix it, by any means.

So muslim states are aware their culture their culture is certifiably raped of all freedom (their women at least) yet the west is "blind" to the fact our democracy doesn't give us absolute, unconditional freedom when we do in fact, have most freedoms? Get out, that image is idiotic, it's pejorative to the west in that we're somehow a "blind" culture, when it's the totalitarianism of the Muslim world that is assbackwards
